Millions of fatwas are issued by islamic clerics dictating every single aspect of muslims' lives, most of them are totally insane.
If your spouse has recently died but you feel turned on by their cooling corpse, no worries, there's a fatwa for that! Islam permits sexual intercourse with the recently dead. Via Blazing Cat Fur:
Meet Sheikh Abdelbari Zamzami who just made necrophilia halal.Funny thing about that fatwa, it says the couple will be reunited in islamic "heaven", but considering that the islamic funeral prayer (like the one the Obama regime forced our military to recite over bin Laden's corpse) begs to allah that the decedent's wife and family be replaced by "better" ones in the afterlife, there appears to be a contradiction.
Don't you wish you lived under sharia law?
More here: Zemzami justifies his ruling by means of analogy: Since a good Muslim couple will meet again in Heaven, and since death does not alter the marital contract (in his opinion) it is not a hindrance to the husband’s desire to have sexual intercourse with the corpse of his (freshly) deceased wife"
No laughing matter: female laughter, if it can be heard by stranger, is forbidden in islam. Via FrontPage Magazine:
The totalitarianism within Islam in terms of the forced veiling of women is a well-known phenomenon to us in the West. Less known is the terrifying fear within Islam of a woman’s laugh. Female laughter poses such a threat to the despotic misogynist order on which Islam is based that it has to be ruthlessly punished and repressed.The Obama regime has been reaching out to the Taliban in Afghanistan. Yes, the Taliban, who just kidnapped and executed a British soldier, the Taliban who ruled Afghanistan in a reign of terror and unimaginable brutality, the Taliban who will likely rule in Afghanistan again, thanks to Obama. What was life like under islamic Taliban rule? Here's a sample, via Live Leak:
This pathology is very much interconnected with Islam’s rejection of earthly happiness.
Ayatollah Khomeini, for instance, followed this theology obediently and expressed its nature perfectly by rejecting, with furious revulsion, anything that could possibly cause earthly cheer or happiness (i.e. music). He explained:
Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.
Thus, laughter is especially discouraged on many realms within Islam and it is, not surprisingly, specifically forbidden for women, and especially young girls. READ THE WHOLE THING
Taliban restrictions and mistreatment of women include the:
1- Complete ban on women's work outside the home, which also applies to female teachers, engineers and most professionals. Only a few female doctors and nurses are allowed to work in some hospitals in Kabul.

3- Ban on women dealing with male shopkeepers.
4- Ban on women being treated by male doctors.

- Banned the use of the internet by both ordinary Afghans and foreigners. MORE HERE
There is no end to the stupidity that islam forces people to endure. Via ListVerse, here are a few more idiotic fatwas:
The Fatwa: Grand Mufti Sheikh Ibn Baaz: The Sun Revolves Around the EarthA New York Daily News article from 2010 has more details on that last bit of muslim kookiness described above:
In a 2000 Fatwa titled “The Transmitted and Sensory Proofs of the Rotation of the Sun and Stillness of the Earth”, Saudi Arabian Grand Mufti Sheikh Ibn Baaz asserted that the earth was flat and disk-like and that the sun revolved around it. He had insisted that satellite images to the contrary were nothing but a Western conspiracy against the Islamic world.
The Fatwa: Muhammad Al-Munajid: Bring Me the Head of Mickey Mouse
That’s right, somebody put on hit on Mickey Mouse. Calling Mickey “one of Satan’s soldiers,” Sheikh Muhammad Al-Munajid decreed that household mice and their cartoon cousins must be “killed in all cases”, according to the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph.
And get this—the guy’s not your average nutjob, either—Munajid used to be a former diplomat at the Saudi embassy in Washington D.C. He made the remarks on Arab television network al-Majd TV after he was asked to give Islam’s teaching on mice.
But don’t worry, Mickey won’t be alone. Munajid also put a hit on Jerry from “Tom and Jerry”.
The Fatwa: Multaqa Ahl al Hadeeth: Emoticon fatwa
According to Muslim Internet Forum Multaqa Ahl al Hadeeth, “Emoticons are forbidden because of its imitation to Allah’s creatures whether it is original or mixture or even deformed one and since the picture is the face and the face is what makes the real picture then emoticons which represent faces that express emotions then all that add up to make them Haram.” Additionally, “A woman should not use these images when speaking to a man who is not her mahram, because these faces are used to express how she is feeling, so it is as if she is smiling, laughing, acting shy and so on, and a woman should not do that with a non-mahram man. It is only permissible for a woman to speak to men in cases of necessity, so long as that is in a public chat room and not in private correspondence.”
The Fatwa: Infidel Vaccine
Polio is actually increasing in India, Nigeria, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Why? Because an anti-polio fatwa by anti-Western clerics forbid Pakistani children from immunizations, because the clerics are saying the vaccine is a conspiracy to make Muslims sterile. Ironically, it’s the clerics’ plans that would produce this result, as dead/paralytic kids don’t breed all that much.
The Fatwa: Ezzat Attiya: Adult Breastfeeding in the Workplace
In May 2007, Ezzat Attiya wondered how unrelated men and women could work together in the same office, when Islam forbids men and women who aren’t married or related to be alone together. His answer: let her suckle him FIVE TIMES. Yes, that’s right, an adult female breastfeeding an adult male coworker will defuse all sexual tension in the office. See, the female worker will now be the male worker’s foster mother, and they can be alone together anytime.
As part of Islamic law, men and women are forbidden to be alone together, unless they are blood relatives or have established maternal relations, in order to prevent sexual contact.
As a way to avoid breaking this rule - which can result in lashings or prison time - Sheikh Al Obeikan, adviser to the royal court and consultant to the Ministry of Justice, told Gulf News that women should give their breast milk to male colleagues, acquaintances or anyone with whom they come into regular contact.
"The man should take the milk, but not directly from the breast of the woman," Al Obeikan said, according to Gulf News. "He should drink it and then becomes a relative of the family, a fact that allows him to come in contact with the women without breaking Islam's rules about mixing."
While Al Obeikan advises that milk should be pumped and then given in a glass, another Saudi sheik, Abi Ishaq Al Huwaini, argues that men should suckle directly.
Below is a video that illustrates the absurdity of the whole thing:
Keep this all in mind the next time some islamic propagandist cries that it's wrong to oppose the implementation of islamic law in the United States of America.
